Krysten Ritter Cast in ABC Comedy Pilot

Gravity - Krysten Ritter as Lily Champagne

Pilot season is underway again and one of the most sought-after actresses around town this year has been Krysten Ritter. According to, the actress has gotten multiple offers but has finally decided on a project.

Ritter is set to play the lead in ABC’s single-camera comedy pilot Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apt. 23 (which is the show’s current working title). The comedy will be directed by Modern Family‘s Jason Winer and Ritter will be joining Dreama Walker (The Good Wife) who was cast a week ago as the co-lead.

The show centers on June (Walker), an earnest, honest, optimistic girl from the heartland who, due to circumstances beyond her control, is forced to move in with Chloe (Ritter), a sexy, unstable New York City party girl who has the morals of a pirate.

Chloe kinda sounds like a few people I know.

Next up for Ritter is a role in the indie feature Refuge, based on Jessica Goldberg’s play, which tells the story of a young woman (Ritter), who is forced to care for her younger brother and sister after her parents have abandoned the family and ends up forming an unorthodox “family” with a young drifter. The actress also recently wrapped production on comedy BFF & Baby, which she co-wrote with Kat Coiro and in which she stars opposite Kate Bosworth. She has also appeared in TV, with roles on shows like Gilmore Girls, Breaking Bad and Gravity.
